Safe railways for Australia

Safety message: Digital recreation #2 - Uncontrolled wagon movement

In this, ONRSR’s second digital re-creation, we look at the issue of uncontrolled movements and what happens when rail safety workers take shortcuts and ignore processes and protocols.

Watch it here...

ONRSR is producing digital recreations of actual safety occurrences on the Australian rail network where we are able to share what we are seeing through our regulatory activities – particularly our investigations. By recreating incidents we are able to guide viewers through an incident, showing how it unfolded and provide key learnings in the process.

The first recreation explored the issue of a communications breakdown that resulted in a near miss for a track worker.
